Vegas night scenes – Travel Photo Mondays

Night time is when sin city comes alive with all the glitz and glamour that you’d expect from this city whose motto really lives up to its motto ” What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” The brilliance of the night scape and dazzling lights really put on a spectacular show even if your walking down the strip, which it seems every night is filled with thousands of thrill seekers checking the night-time scenes.

There’s nothing like seeing the entire strip from a vantage point above. Hanging out at the Cosmopolitan swimming pool for a travel conference, it was fun to check out the crowds below walking through the strip, although the party scene up at the pool was also fun with open bars, food stations and a cool band. Check out the pool scene below and some of the flashy interiors at the Cosmopolitan.

Downtown Vegas – It’s live!

Downtown Vegas is a different vibe, it’s totally retro cool with these older casinos turned hip with their old school neon lights and night-time scene happening with the Fremont Street Experience. It seems like everything is happening all at once when you enter the  Fremont Street promenade with live acts everywhere, go-go dancers shaking their booties on top of outdoor bars, live bands singing and people zipping overhead through a course beneath the largest video screen projecting electric light shows. It’s almost over the top and on hyper drive walking through the promenade.

In East Fremont street, things are a little more subdued but just as lively with the hipster crowd hanging out at popular bars, eateries and nightclubs.  All the small casinos on this side have been converted to cool hangout spots for locals and tourist to enjoy something truly unique and exciting in this revitalized area.

Night time Scene from my room

I think by far my favorite late night-time scene is from my fantastic room at the Monte Carlo Hotel on the strip and looking out on the spectacular City Center on the strip. My bed was all the comfort I would ever want in Vegas, but it also came with an amazing living room and kitchen. The bathrooms were huge including a large Jacuzzi whirlpool in the bedroom area overlooking these magnificent views. Needless to say I really enjoyed the views and soaking after a very long day touring Sin City all day and night.

 

Ah yes, my delicious bed at the Monte Carlo Hotel

Here’s my absolute favorite shot of the day, because I was in heaven the minute my head hit those soft pillows. Good night from the Monte Carlo and sweet dreams for Travel Photo Mondays. Please do visit the bloggers below participating today.

    Your night shots of Vegas are incredible. I don’t drink or gamble in Vegas – I go there to take photos 😉 The view from your room is stunning!

  2. Doreen Pendgracs August 27, 2014 at 2:53 pm #

    Fab pics, Noël. Vegas is indeed a photographer’s playground. Something intriguing, colourful and exciting at every turn.

    We saw the neon graveyard during the day, but seeing it night would be even better – wow. Our son manages the musical water display at the Bellagio, so we visit Vegas often. Now you’ve shown me something I want to see again all lit up.

    • Noel August 26, 2014 at 8:20 pm #

      Yes it is a cool place to explore at night time, I’m going to do another post on the boneyard

  4. Catherine August 26, 2014 at 11:22 am #

    Great photos! The bright lights alone are reason enough to make me want to visit Vegas! Didn’t know all the dfferent areas had their own vibe though – would love to check them all out!

  5. Leigh August 25, 2014 at 5:39 pm #

    You definitely caught the glammer and lights of Vegas. I can feel the beat of the city from your photos.

    These photos definitely make me want to get back to Vegas! I especially want to get to the neon museum and to downtown. I didn’t get a chance to go last time I was there. I’d love to do some time-lapse photography in Las Vegas as well. Are you into time-lapse at all?

    This reminds me of the movie I watched this weekend, “Last Vegas.” Great shots! Here are some of my fave places in this crazy city, http://travelswithcarole.blogspot.com/search/label/Las%20Vegas
    I think I’ll skip that straight roller coaster way up atop a building that I saw in the movie. Eeeekkkk!

  8. Johanna Bradley August 25, 2014 at 11:41 am #

    Vibrant and brim full of life! The total opposite of my walk today, Noel. It takes all kinds to make a world. 🙂

  9. Kay Dougherty August 25, 2014 at 7:06 am #

    I love neon and this photo discovery of Las Vegas had enough to meet my needs for a while! I”m not a Vegas kinda gal so I can just enjoy it this way without having to actually go there. Dirty job for you but someone has to do it!

    • Noel August 25, 2014 at 7:30 am #

      I didn’t think I would enjoy Vegas, but there is really a lot things to see and do outside of the casino world

  10. The Gypsynesters August 25, 2014 at 4:08 am #

    Great photos, as always. Especially like the old downtown stuff.

  11. Catherine August 25, 2014 at 3:40 am #

    Oh Vegas! …the city where I go to visit my parents believe it or not 🙂 Love the night shots, really captures the energy and essence of the strip and surrounding area.

    Talk about glitz and glamour. My hairdresser recently went to Vegas and absolutely loved it. I have never been to Vegas or to anywhere like it, if there is anywhere like it! I like the look of Downtown Vegas. Great photo of the Go Go Dancer.

  13. Marisol@TravelingSolemates August 25, 2014 at 12:57 am #

    Hi Noel, Wow, looked like you had a rocking travel conference. The view from your room is awesome. Thanks for bringing us the glitz of Vegas. I can feel the city’s energy in each image. I enjoyed the variety of scenes. Great night shots.

  14. Jesh StG August 24, 2014 at 8:55 pm #

    Wow, how dazzling! Only know Las Vegas from during the day, when driving through to Utah:)

  15. Michele Peterson August 24, 2014 at 8:38 pm #

    I love how you captured the spirit and energy of Vegas at night! That limo driven by Liberace is priceless!

  16. Betts Wuebker August 24, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    Love the old school neon. The Neon Museum was a favorite. The downtown area has such a nice vibe now.

  17. santafetraveler August 24, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

    You really captured the glitter, glitz, neon and decadence of Las Vegas, Noel.

  18. Suzanne Fluhr August 24, 2014 at 6:22 pm #

    I have to confess that I really dislike Las Vegas—-probably my Puritanical streak nurtured by growing up in Philadelphia. Quakers aren’t the most “exciting” denomination in the world. However, your photos certainly do it justice.

  19. Marilyn Jones August 24, 2014 at 6:20 pm #

    WOW! Your photos are superb. You really captured the glitz, glitter and neon perfectly!!

  20. Johanna August 24, 2014 at 6:19 pm #

    I could feel it, hear it, smell it and the buzz of excitement and anticipation was hanging heavy around me! I’ve never been and I wonder what a small town girl would make of all that razmatazz and glitter! I think she’d like it, actually! Fabulous fabulous night-time photography, Noel.

  21. Donna Janke August 24, 2014 at 6:14 pm #

    Great Vegas night scenes. I particularly like Fremont Street – such a fun experience.

  22. travelnwrite August 24, 2014 at 11:58 am #

    You’ve captured one of our favorite places well. I could almost hear the noise and feel the vibration in these photos, Noel.

  23. Jessica @ Independent Travel Cats August 24, 2014 at 8:47 am #

    Some lovely night shots of the city, so much glitz and sparkle. Not a big fan of Vegas based on my one visit, but I think I should give it another shot:)

  24. Corinne August 24, 2014 at 8:09 am #

    Noel, I love, love, love doing night shots and I’ve always wanted to go to the Neon museum!

    • Corinne August 24, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

      And also, Noel, thanks for once again linking up with Weekend Travel Inspiration!
